These pictures are worth 6,000 words….

We’ve now wrapped up our photo contest  and, with half the year gone, want to look back and share. We are once again amazed at the diversity, beauty and love that is evident in the submissions. People captured nature, each other and, of course, Woodstock in their pictures. And it was a joy looking at them, remembering[…]

The Devil’s Path 5.13-5.15 2016

Last weekend I traversed the entire Devil’s Path supposedly one of the most difficult trails on the east coast.  We were to be 5 brave souls that weekend but a few folks bagged out due to the weather forecast and so just two of us ended up doing the 2night/3day backpacking trip led by Jeff[…]

You’re crazy if you don’t hike in the Catskills in the Fall!

There are so many amazing, beautiful trails right here in Woodstock, and venturing into the larger backyard of the Catskills is simply wondrous. It’s always awe-inspiring to see the power of nature in action; watching flowers and streams and right now especially, the trees, change and adapt. Fall is always a balancing act. It brings[…]

Enjoy the calm (and savings) of winter

Winter is an amazing time here in Woodstock. The mountain air is so fresh, the skiing is enjoyable – whether you opt for downhill or cross country. Hiking trails are not crowded, and snowshoeing is a perfect option if Mother Nature works her white magic on us. But the real joy of this season is[…]
